Its official, the 2015 Ford Mustang has been announced. The news has dropped with much anticipation; Ford was rumored to have redesigned the Mustang for the birthday of the brand. The 50th anniversary ponycar will come with 3 available engines: 3.7L V6; 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder; and 5.0L V8. With Chrysler and Chevrolet both introducing new and improved versions of Challenger and Camaro, it was only natural for Ford to strike back.
The 2015 Ford Mustang GT will come with a 5.0L Coyote motor capable of a projected 420 hp, the same as the 2014 version. It’s rumored that Ford will squeak out even more ponies from the engine to compete with the Camaro SS and Challenger SRT8, but we’ll have to wait for a test drive to find out. The all-aluminum Coyote motor will come with either a six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. All Mustangs will come with four-wheel power disc brakes. The 3.7L and 2.3L Mustangs will come with 12.6-inch, twin-piston brakes up front, while the 5.0L Mustang GT will have 13.9-inch, four-piston brakes behind the front wheels.
The interior of the car has been completely overhauled, giving it a much more classic feel, while also retaining its modern, sporty edge. The exterior features more predominant rear tail lights, protruding from the body to give the ‘Stang a more noticeable sequential design. On the outside, the front has been given a more modern, possibly European-influenced design. Wrap-around head lights, coupled with a wide, more aggressive grille make the Mustang’s signature fascia standout from afar.
With the release of the redesigned Mustang, enthusiast will have a new platform to compete on both at the track and on the road. The stylish 50th anniversary Mustang shows-off Ford’s ability to keep-up with the paces, taking no bailout money from the government, and selling an exceptional high volume of cars over its heritage. This new Mustang, coming with performance and style, is sure to please both fans and customers new to owning a Ford.
